Rush, ZZTop and ELP. Those are the ones I've listened to the most. I think Rush is the most musically gifted.

uhm... Mountain was never a trio, I don't think.
They had a keyboard player, whose name was Steve Knight. He never got any solos to speak of, though...

Anyway, my favs:

1. Jimi Hendrix Experience
2. Cream
3. Groundhogs

I always think of the Chili Peppers as a trio, since they only have 3 instrumentalists. Most trios fill the space with bombacity, or have a dominant guitar player. I like the Peppers because they do it with RHYTHM, which I think is pretty unique.

At least 2/3rd's of those bands are shite. Pick some good trio's, for Christ's sake.

Good pun. Father...son...and holy spirit. One of the first tri-partite groups though I don't think they could get their collective act together for a single gig.


That's just a generic list to get the ball rolling. No rights/ no wrongs.

Can't even name 3 from such a lousy list??

Actually it was Dave Parlato who played on "Filthy Habits". He would have been on "Ocean" too but then Partick O'Hearn brought his upright bass to FZ' studio and the rest was history.

Gee, I dunno if Buddy Holly and the Crickets qualify as a power trio.
Just because there are only three members doesn't exactly qualify a band as a power trio.
If it did, by that logic you'd have to throw in Jonny Cash & The Tennessee Two :wink:

I'm thinking of checking out Massacre (avant). Fred Frith was in it. Anyone familiar with that avant power trio?

The Jam

I liked ELP when I was much younger in the 70's.

And I liked Die Ärzte in the 80's. Now my daughter is listening to them and I must say they are still good.

Yes, I don't think a singer changes the basic fact of a power trio. Given that the thread title specifically says "Power Trio", I always thought that was Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drums. So Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath would have to get a look in there.

I kind of grew out of power trios a long time ago when I started getting into FZ and 20th C classical, but I still have a soft spot for them. Historically I think The Band of Gypsys are the definitive power trio. My sister bought that for me when I was a kid and it was the best present she's ever bought for me.
